The UCF Recreation and Wellness Center, in partnership with the American Red Cross, is now expanding our First Aid, CPR and AED Certification Courses beyond the UCF Community and offering this important opportunity to all persons in the central Florida area. The RWC’s certified staff of trained instructors teach in a blended learning format, which includes and online component as well as an in-person class. The American Red Cross’ blended learning courses equip attendees to recognize and care for a variety of first aid breathing and cardiac emergencies involving adults, children, and infants (depending on the course).

It is designed for attendees who need a certification that satisfies OSHA workplace or other regulatory requirements. These classes are taught in a blended learning format and the online portion (accessed via mobile desktop or tablet) must be completed prior to attending the Instructor-led skills session. Upon successful completion, a valid 2-year digital certificate based on the course taken is issued.

These courses are in addition to classes that the RWC has offered for over a decade to UCF Students, Faculty and Staff. For information on registration, cost and policies please visit our website at https://rwc.sdes.ucf.edu/programs/risk-management/cpr-first-aid/
